Newpark strategy??

Stupid decision #5

How about maximizing shareholder value by building a $40m State if the art building/office in Katy and NOT building 1 office for corporate and minions. We all know PH and crew don’t want to park their Bimmers nor drive out of the Woodlands. Way to... read more

Stupid decision #4

Spending $30 million on Fourchon upgrades. Idiotic move in a 20 rig shrinking market. Every day drillers are scrapping offshore rigs and leave it to Newpark to spend $30m in what is basically a dead market. And then Dumb and Dumber try to present it... read more

Stupid decision #3

Keeping the cigar chomping Scotsman on way past his prime. PB made him look good. Bs had NO people skills, no loyalty towards anyone and worst of all brought on PV as his replacement. He didn't have the cajones to stand up for WW and DV who among... read more

Stupid decisions = stupid results

Long time shareholder and occasional lurker. Last CC, Paul talked about NP making tough decisions. After seeing what has transpired in the past 2 years, I see a lot of STUPID DECISIONS and the quarterly results continue confirming my opinion. More... read more

Newpark better be watching the rear view mirror

CES is about to run flat over them. So much better diversified and a management team that is proactive-rather than reactive. One company comments about technology and growth. The other talks about getting a big tax refund. You can figure it out!!!

Based on Uruguay

Do they expect us to applaud the 2 international awards? After all, when it was all said and done Uruguay actually cost NDF $$$. More of the Dumb and Dumber brainpower at work. Never ending story, just like Brazil.

Not eligible for rehire

This needs to be mandatory for PH, GP, MA, BS, PV and BC. All have caused the demise of NP. Really sad the damage caused by these illiterates.
